Description: Known to local Thornhill residents since at least 1885, the Thornhill site (the current site of E.J. Sands Public School) is an ancestral Huron-Wendat village and cemetery dating to the early 16th century. During the 1920s the site was investigated by A.J. Clark, a talented avocational archaeologist, artist, and resident of Vaughan. Recent archaeological work at the site in advance of development has determined the presence of significant features and artifacts.

Speaker: Martin Cooper is a Senior Archaeologist and Senior Associate with Archaeological Services Inc. He has conducted archaeological research throughout Ontario for over the past 40 years and is a long-time resident of Thornhill.
